Quick App: Earthworm Jim Blasts its Way Onto the iPhone

Earthworm Jim [$4.99 - iTunes link], an iPhone and iPod touch remake of the classic Sega and Nintendo game of the same name, has just landed in the App Store.

Confession: I was a huge Earthworm Jim fan back in the day. The animation sold me instantly, and that animation looks just as good on the iPhone. I'm downloading it now. If anyone else gives it a try, especially old-school fans, let us know what you think.
